>> and i have the right to petition the courts if the don't agree with a law. we are not going to all agree with every law that is passed. i don't agree with the laws that restrict contraception use now being put forth in different states around the country. i feel like those infringe on my rights as well. >> nothing infringes on your rights. >> you don't have to work at hobby lobby. economicception is an check issue for many women. >> this is about forcing the employer to give it to you for free. >> happy new. >> sean: and we continue to monitor here on the fox news channel america on the brink. the latest on the fiscal cliff. let not your heart be troubled. that is all the time we have left but greta is standing by to go on the record. we'll see you back here monday captioned by closed captioning services, inc. >> greta: this s a fox news alert. 74 hours to go before president obama, the senate and the house shove america off the fiscal cliff. let's go to capitol hill fox news chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel live with the latest. >> we are heading into a critic

reacted to the compromised bill. >> under this law, more than 98% of americans and 97% of small businesses will not see their income taxes go up. millions of families will continue to receive tax credits to help raise their kids and send them to college. companies will continue to receive tax credits for the research they do, the investments they make and the clean energy jobs they create. 2 million americans are out of work with, but out there looking and pounding the pavement every day will continue to receive unemployment benefits as long as they're actively looking for a job. i'm very open to compromise. i agree with democrats and republicans that the aging population and the rising cost of health care makes medicare the biggest contributor to our deficit. i believe we have to find ways to reform that program without hurting seniors who count on it to survive. and i believe that there's further unnecessary spending in government that we can eliminate. but we can't simply cut our way to prosperity. i will not have another debate with this congress over whether or not they should pay the
. they haven't passed a bill in 1300 days in the united states senate. constitutionally, something by law they are required to do. they haven't done it. the president, 18 hours on the golf course, 20 hours in the air, plenty of time working out. now he races back to washington, you know, like the lone ranger on his horse silver in to save the day. this isn't serious. this is not a president that's serious about spending, is it? >> this is not about leadership. 1,337 days, harry reid hasn't pass add a budget. they have been in control the whole time. this fiscal cliff was predictable. we knew this was going to happen two years ago. and don't forget, these are the bush-obama tax cuts. all the president needs to do is actually propose some spending cuts. i think with geithner's admission that the debt ceiling will be burst through on december 31st clearly shows it's a problem. it's time to cut spending, not for now but future generations that have to pay this off. >> it seems to me, congressman gohmert, the bush tax cuts have been law since 2001-2003. it seems if the president doesn't want t
that they have already racked up through the laws they passed. we can't not pay bills we have already incurred. if congress refuses to give the united states government the ability to pay these bills on time, the consequences for the entire global economy would be cat stenographic, far worse than the impact of a fiscal cliff. >>> let's bring in brianna keilar. a lot of people are talking about winners and losers, but c'mon, i feel like we're all losers in this, considering we didn't get a deal, we just got a patch. >> reporter: that is true. i don't think it's ever really healthy for americans when you're kind of going through this process every year, whether it's the a.m.t. fix or tax cuts, so i think the fact that those tax cuts were permanently extended actually is a good thing, because it is difficult when they aren't, but yeah, i think that you look at especially now the environment of things as this is a congress that the president wants to undertake other issues like immigration reform and gun violence, and you can see how it even maybe has a pleefover effect as they try to get their bu
've already racked up through the laws that they passed. let me repeat. we can't not pay bills that we've already incurred. >> the debt ceiling is coming, the sequesters are coming. cue the next countdown clock. joining us now from washington, the sage of capitol hill, hardest-working man in news business, nbc's luke russert. the first question i have to ask you, do you sleep, and will you ever get a vacation? >> no and no is the answer right now. >> never. >> i missed it completely. it's funny, my colleagues down on capitol hill, too, missed christmas, missed new year's. new year's eve on capitol hill is quite an experience. nothing like being with oren hatch at the midnight hour. >> getting the fiscal deal, less than an hour to go, but is this just the small battle, and is the real fight willing to come? because republicans are already signaling that they want the debt limit to be when they really stand their ground. >> one of the criticisms people have of pundits and reporters in d.c. is they are always looking ahead to the next thing and we don't digest what's happening enough in f
to this crisis. we're talking about the fiscal cliff. >> it hasn't got ensigned into law. there's no success yet there. >> boehner should move it tomorrow. he should just do that. >> jonathan? >> listen, the president campaigned on a three to one spending reduction and we're not see anything spending here. democrats controlled two-thirds of the chips. >> joy ann, why is this all about taxes? >> one reelection and the -- it doesn't do that much spending. >> it's been all about taxes. >> all about raising taxes. >> there's this obsession with raising taxes. >> it was to go after school lunches and elderly care, health care for poor kids and increased spending. >> no, no, no, they want entitlement reform, joy ann. why this obsession with cutting old people's medicare? >> it's not an obsession about cutting benefits to the elderly, joy ann. it's about reforming medicare over time so at some point in the future we don't tell an 80-year-old you know what? you're not going get the medicare cha you thought you would have. this is about not hurting the elderly. >> the republican solution is to hand 80-ye
. so there are a number of options. >> now if lawmakers are willing to confiscate certain guns from law-abiding citizens, what else are they willing to do in here's nationally syndicated columnist and author michelle malkin is with us. thanks for being with us. >> thanks, sean. >> when you hear a governor talk about confiscation and you look at senator feinstein's proposal for assault weapons bans. this is an all-out attack against gun owners rights. i want to get your perspective. >> you bet. i think we owe governor cuomo some thanks, at least for being honest or having a momentary lapse of candor here and highlighting and exposing of the true agenda of the gun grabbers. this is not about honoring the newtown victims or doing anything practice to try to prevent the next mass shooting and massacre and horrific event like we had there. this is another cynical exercise in futility and political exploitation of a bloody tragedy. it gives lie to the long time denial of so many of these anti-second amendment groups who are always trying to reassure law-abiding gun owners that, no, no, we're
or not they should pay the bills that they have already racked up through the laws that they passed. let me repeat. we can't not pay bills that we've already incurred. >> what leverage does the white house have left if they've already now played the card on the precipice of the fiscal cliff with the election result at their back. why now going forward would they have the leverage to entertain some type of a grand bargain or to not have to negotiate over the fiscal -- the debt ceiling limitation. >> the answer is none, michael. when i heard the president said that, i thought good luck with that. >> right. >> the one thing that this republican-dominated congress has proven over the last four years that it can do is nothing. but we had two points of leverage. they had to deal with the sequester and they had to deal with things like the estate tax and upper -- and taxes on the wealthiest. so we gave away those two face cards, if you will. i don't think we got anything in return that's going to matter over the long-term because we set ourselves up for situation where the only questions being asked is w
id an issue and voter id laws will take effect in south carolina this year, as well. the war on women exploded in 2012. this is why we must continue to fight. and this year, for the first time since 1994, the violence against women's act is gone. blocked by an extreme republican congress who let it die without a vote. this year, the billionaire's boy's club, the coke brothers and sheldon adelson spent hundreds of millions of dollars. this is why the fight continues. we didn't fight last year just over an election, we fought over a direction. a direction of fairness, a direction of democracy. the fight continues. happy new year. keep prepared to come to the battlefield. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton, "hardball starts right now. >> fiscal cliff hangover, let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm michael smerconish in for chris matthews. leading off tonight, did anyone really win in the fiscal cliff standoff? on one hand it marks the end of the reagan revolution. after all republicans voted to raise taxes for the first time in decades. on the other hand, the deal could
in the house so it's got no chance whatsoever of becoming law, end quote. that's what i said back on july 25th. the only reason we ever allowed that vote on that proposal is i said at that time was that we knew it didn't pass constitutional muster. and the democrats were really serious, they would proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house as the constitution requires and as i called on them to do again last week. to repeat, the so-called nate bill is nothing more than a glorified sense of the senate resolution. so let's put that convenient talking point aside from here on out. last night i told the president we'd be happy to look at whatever he proposes but the truth is we're coming up against a hard deadline here and, as i said, this is a conversation we should have had months ago. and republicans aren't about to write a blank check or anything senate democrats put forward just because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff. that wouldn't be fair to the american people. that having been said, we'll see what the president has to propose. members on both sides of the aisle will

will be legal and illegal in the year 2013. >> well, some local laws already made headlines this year. gay marriage was passed in maryland and maine, and the recreational use of marijuana was passed in colorado and in washington state. wait, there's more, much more. let's start with the laws that take effect on january 1st. so in illinois and california employers may no longer force employees to provide the passwords to their stoeshl media accounts, and the same is true if you apply for a job in either state. speaking of job secrets, check out oregon. employers cannot at this time a job list inning that state until they are willing to hired unemployed. in maryland arsenic is banned this chicken feed. why? it's aimed to protect the waters of the chesapeake bay from toxins. in california this made headlines, too. that state is banning the treatment aimed at changing the sexual orientation of anyone under 18. >>> if you're a fan of sharks, you'll like this. the possession, sale or trade of shark fins is illegal in illinois. in florida if you own a swamp buggy, don't have to register it as a m
and responsible gun laws. you see it happening again after sandy hook. after the two firefighters who were assassinated just the other day and two police officers who were killed on christmas eve. the fact of the matter is these people buy these guns because they can, because it's so easy to buy assault weapons in the united states of america. and we've got to do something about that. yes, we've got to get people to get involved in the way they did here in l.a. with a gun buyback program. very successful program. would have been even more successful if we hadn't run out of money. there were people waiting in line for hours to give up these guns including assault weapons, a grenade launcher. you saw that automatic weapon with a silencer. these are weapons that don't really have any purpose except to kill and to kill a lot of people. it's not just gun buyback programs. assault weapons ban on a federal level. we need to eliminate the t.r. amendment, which makes it very, very difficult to have background checks that work. it requires that we destroy background checks after 24 hours. >> right.
and is what president obama will sign into law. >> that's what will remain in place as long as i am pthd. everyone pays their fair share. everyone does their part. >> everyone pays their fair share. and everyone does their part. that's what president obama won in this deal for the country. first, he forced republicans to raise taxes on those earning more than $400,000 a year. he also extended unemployment benefits to 2 million americans who are out of work. people who desperately need help now. and he extended the stimulus tax break for working hch cla ingwos all across the country. the president did this without cuts in our safety net. the deal delays the automatic spending cuts for the start of the year and it doesn't include a single dime in cuts to medicare, medicaid or social security. republicans who know who won this debate have expressed it. just listen to this. >> we all knew the ptresident ws going to get his way. he wins. >> this is a complete surrender on everything. it's a complete route by the democrats. >> the last time a republican voted to raise taxes, george bush was pr

, because if they don't do it, the farm legislation lapses and we revert to farm laws between 1938 and '39. the house has not even voted on its version. congress doing nothing about even the stuff everyone is paying attention to, not to mention being famously not in session, it seems highly unlikely the house is going to get it done in time. so what? here's what, in one example. if there is no new farm bill six days from now, the government will have to abide by the provisions of a 19 49d law regarding milk. that would require them to buy milk from dairy farmers at hugely inflated prices. if that law takes effect again in 2013, the government will be forced to pay double what it currently pays for milk. for a short time it will be awesome for dairy farmers, they can sell as much milk as they can to make a ton of money. even dairy farmers know that the windfall will be bad news real quick. the government run on milk will lead to shortages for people who buy milk at the grocery store or buy it to make dairy products like cheese and pizza. americans love their pizza. it would drive up prices

boehner during the course of the negotiations and there is a tax quirk in the law that would actually impact income holders between 250,000 and 400,000, much higher and disproportionately than those who earn more than 400,000. obviously small businesses. but nevertheless, i think the bottom line is, that the senate has to step up to the forefront here and address this issue and reach an agreement, build a consensus, get the support of hopefully the majority of democrats and republicans and move it to the house of representatives. i think it would bill momentum. i do think it's crucial and in the final analysis that they will reach an accord on this critical matter. i think it would be horrific for the country if at this time, the final days of this legislative session that already has reached historic proportions of failure, that we would now culminate in failure to extend these tax cuts. >> senator, you sound willing to go ahead and agree to raising taxes on wealthier americans to preserve them for the middle class however that gets defined. what are you hearing among the rest of the
's got no chance whatsoever of becoming law, end quote. that's what i said back on july 25th. the only reason we ever allowed that vote on that proposal, as i said at that time, was that we knew it didn't pass constitutional muster and that democrats were really serious they would proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house, as the constitution requires, and as i called on them to do again last week. to repeat, the so-called senate bill is nothing more than a glorified sense of the senate resolution so let's put that convenient talking point aside from here on out. last night i told the president we'd be happy to look at whatever he proposes, but the truth is we're coming up against a hard deadline here, and as i said this is a conversation we should have had months ago. and republicans aren't about to write a blank check for anything senate democrats put forward just because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff. that wouldn't be fair to the american people. that having been said, we'll see what the president has to propose. members on both sides of the aisle will revi
